Livia und Nelia want to represent Switzerland at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, for the first time ever in the women’s class 49erFX. It’s still a long way to go, where every day on the water counts!

Helm Livia Naef

I grew up on the shore of Lake Constanze and started sailing Opti in my local club Yacht Club Arbon. I’ve sailed competitively all my life on national and international level. After I had to abandon my last 49erFX campaign I sailed across the Atlantic. Back in Switzerland I worked in a mental training academy for athletes and businesses. But I never quite gave up the dream of being the first Swiss 49erFX team at the Olympic games.

Crew Nelia Puhze

I partly grew up on the ocean, sailing the summers from Sweden to
Greece on a yacht. I only started sailing competitively a few years ago and got addicted to 49erFX sailing two years ago. Since then it’s alway been my dream to master this high-performance skiff. Now I’m working every single day for that dream with Livia. Apart from sailing I still run my boutique PR agency as a digital nomad from around the world.
